Technical Analysis

Video Analysis

The AUDUSD and NZDUSD spot FX rates have remained under pressure so far this week, to maintain and reinforce short-term bearish themes evident for much of this year. The moves in late August to new, multi-year lows leaves a downside risk for both the A$ and NZ$ against the US currency into early September.


Another push lower through midweek and despite an intraday bounce we see bias Thursday lower target, having breached the psychological/ option level at .7000.

Furthermore, the reversal below the long term trend line from 2001 leaves a re-energized bear pressures into early September.

Short/ Intermediate-term Outlook – Downside Risks:

  • We see a negative tone resurfacing with the bearish threat to .6857
  • Break sees .6645 and .6500

  • A mini bounce effort, but still a low level consolidation Wednesday, capped by .6391 and hitting a new setback low (since the spike lower) to leave bearish risks lower into Thursday.

  • We see a negative tone with the bearish threat to longer term targets at .6196/54.
  • Overshoot threat is lower to maybe .6000.
